5 More Medical Podcasts to Add to Your Playlist

For busy physicians, podcasts are one of the best ways to stay informed about changes in the industry and keep their skills sharp, even without a lot of free time. Whether driving to and from work or sitting on your lunch break, you can use podcasts to improve your patient interactions and the overall effectiveness of your practice, all while staying up-to-date on trends in your industry and the innovations that affect your work.

Yet because you don’t have a lot of time, you may be wondering which podcasts are worth investing in. Here are some additional top medical podcasts for 2019 that VISTA recommends you add to your playlist today!

1. Health Report

What it’s about:

Health Report is the source for specialists who are looking to learn about the latest changes in their industries. If you’re curious about the hottest trends in your industry, like “Biosecurity, germ warfare and antimicrobial resistance” or “Personalized medicine: Hope or hype?” you’ll find expert opinions here.

Why we like it:

Health Report has a wide range of topics for you to explore, and you’re certain to find something in your specialty area. These are trendy topics that your patients are asking about. As an added bonus, they’re short at less than 30 minutes each, so you can listen to them on your commute or lunch break easily.

2. 2 Docs Talk

What it’s about:

Dr. Kendall Britt and Dr. Amy Rogers, both MDs, take on the hottest issues in medicine and health policy in these short 15-minute podcasts at 2 Docs Talk. Get the latest updates to the policies that affect you and the conditions that affect your patients in short, easy-to-digest snippets.

Why we like it:

These podcasts are fun to listen to, but also pertinent. If you like a little bit of entertainment along with the latest trends you need to know, you’ll love 2 Docs Talk. It’s like sitting down over coffee with a colleague.

3. Behind the Knife

What it’s about:

Behind the Knife goes “behind the scenes” of the world of surgery. Four surgeons use an interview and discussion format to discuss educational topics as well as real-life stories surrounding the surgical world.

Why we like it:

We love the single focus on surgery. Whether or not you’re a surgeon, chances are you’ll have patients that are facing surgery, so you can get a better understanding of what is ahead of them. Also, the range of interviewees is quite good.

4. Bedside Rounds

What it’s about:

Bedside Rounds is a narrative podcast that tells the stories of medicine. Listening to these podcasts shows where medicine has been and where it is going. Because the podcast is told in a narrative story fashion, it’s a bit more entertaining than the educational podcasts you may be used to.

Why we like it:

Bedside Rounds is educational and entertaining at the same time. It’s put out by a real doctor, does not have advertisements, and is frankly quite fun to listen to. If you’re looking for a pick-me-up after work, but also want to learn a bit, this is the one for you.

5. Healthcare Happy Hour

What it’s about:

Healthcare Happy Hour is the podcast of the National Association of Health Underwriters. While it’s designed for the insurance field, it will provide valuable insight to doctors as well as to how insurance is changing and what that might mean for their practices.

Why we like it:

Who doesn’t love happy hour? You might not love insurance topics, but they’re critical to your practice, so use the Healthcare Happy Hour to help you understand it better.
